ArtGet Crafty: Homemade Valentine’s Gifts

Love is in the air, and with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I have found myself yet again gift-less. Normally I would run to the store and find whatever chocolate goodies and cute cards were left, but this year I was determined to make my own Valentine’s gifts.

I have found some simple homemade gifts that are perfect for friends, family or that special someone in your life. They are both inexpensive, easy, and quick to make. Believe me, if I can cut, staple and paste, so can you!

Below is a link to a video from The Early Show on CBS that gives instructions on how to make these gifts as well as a few other Valentine’s Day favorites!

NewsHave You Seen How I Met Your Mother?

If you’ve ever made a slap bet, sung along to “Let’s go to the Mall,” or been frightened by a cockamouse, then chances are, you’ve become acquainted with a little show called How I Met Your Mother.

HIMYM — as fans so lovingly refer to it — is in its fifth season, where the adventures of Ted, Robin, Marshall, Lily, and of course Barney Stinson, still have me absolutely hooked. The CBS sitcom keeps its fans coming back with a plot full of twists and turns as well as plenty of witticisms, inside jokes and fun-loving moments.

It’s funny how many people are absolute addicts of the show. I just talked to a friend who did a “HIMYM Night Out,” which included: suiting up, playing laser tag, going to a cigar lounge and ending the night at an Irish pub. Sounds like it was … wait for it … legendary!


Tell me what you love about HIMYM!!
